These antennas have been designed by Bob Archer from Torrance, CA utilizing concepts common to military aircraft and space vehicles. The antenna performance is superior to most in use today in private aircraft. The only requirement for max. Performance is that the antennas must be installed in accordance with the installation instructions. These antennas are designed to be installed inside fiberglass or other non-conductive wing tips or tail caps of metal or other conductive material aircraft.
NAV Antenna Model
COM Antenna. These antennas are essentially the same with the exception of the overall length and the matching devices with the com antenna being installed vertically and the nav antenna being installed horizontally. VSWR is less than 2:1 over their respective frequency bands. The outer ends of these antennas may be swept to +/-30 degrees to facilitate installation in various aircraft types.
This is the third Bob Archer antenna Ive purchased. Very happy with the products - easy to install.
